The Linwood Neighborhood District Association (NDA) is an officially recognized NDA in the City of Milwaukie.
A few annual programs and events in the Linwood Neighborhood primarily funded by Milwaukie's Neighborhood Grant Program include:
Annual "Movie Under the Stars": The Linwood NDA sponsors two free family movies in the field next to Linwood Elementary School every summer. The movies have become a popular and fun way to meet neighbors and have a great time.
Support of the Police K9 Program: The Linwood NDA has provided ongoing support of the Police Department k9 Program. The neighborhood donated grant funds for the purchase of a K9 dog and continues to help with funraising with the goal of aquiring a second K9 in the near future.
A partnership with Linwood Elementary School to replace their track: One of the most successful partnerships in the history of the grant program occurred in Linwood. The neighborhood partnered with the school to provide a significant amount of funding that was matched by fundraisers that the students, parents, teachers, and others worked very hard to coordinate. It was a great example of how the grant funding can be used as seed money to motivate others to volunteer and help to raise additional funding.
Support of the Milwaukie Dave Festival and Fireworks: Linwood annually donates both funding and volunteer hours to ensure that the summertime festival is a success.
